GMA-7's afternoon series, Inagaw na Bituin, entered its last three weeks starting last Monday, April 29.
This was first announced by the show's lead actress, Kyline Alcantara, during her April 30 regional show in Dagupan City.
In a video uploaded by GMA Artist Center on April 30, Kyline performed Inagaw na Bituin's theme song "Kinang."
Upon hearing the crowd sing with her during the chorus part, Kyline stopped singing and cried.
On May 1, Kyline explained why she cried during her performance.
She wrote, "I cried because it's my first time to announce na 3 weeks na lang ang Inagaw Na Bituin, and i saw the faces of my sunflowers, they got sad. Plus, the crowd of Dagupan sang along with Kinang."
Inagaw na Bituin aired its pilot episode on February 11, 2019 on the network's second Afternoon Prime slot.
Aside from Kyline, the show also starred Therese Malvar, who was already killed off in the teleserye last week.
Inagaw na Bituin also features actresses Sunshine Dizon, Angelu de Leon, and Angelika dela Cruz, who are three of GMA-7's original drama princesses. They top-billed GMA-7's first few attempts of producing teleseryes from the late '90s to the early 2000s.
A PEP Troika report on March 28, 2019 indicated that there were speculations that Inagaw na Bituin's run will be cut short to 10 weeks. A normal drama series has a standard run of 13 weeks or one season.
Instead of cutting it short, GMA-7 decided to change Inagaw na Bituin's timeslot and place it on the third Afternoon Prime slot at 4:15 p.m. on April 1.
The new show Bihag, which was supposed to premiere on that timeslot, was aired on Inagaw na Bituin's former timeslot at 3:25 p.m.
As Inagaw na Bituin airs its final episode on May 17, the musical drama series directed by Mark Reyes will have a total run of 16 weeks.
Based on teasers being shown on GMA-7, Inagaw na Bituin will be replaced by the new series Dahil sa Pag-ibig.
The new series, which will start on May 20, which will top-bill Sanya Lopez, Winwyn Marquez, Pancho Magno, and Benjamin Alves.
